Time to head to the attorneys

Obviously I am dismayed that the management would write me up for capturing&posting over the air communications. I have no choice but comply but now i actually have something in wrtiting that i can show an employment law attorney.
Can i beat them in a court of law? Who knows, given the recent ruling by the labor board it might be possible.
That will be for a qualified attorney to find out.
Robert Romo has assured me that everything that is currently posted on the blog will not subject me to any retroactive discipline so the current blog will not be wiped out which had been past practice.
I have been informed that i am violating HR202 when i post dispatch calls without getting permission from all persons involved in the call!

THE BEAUTY OF ON STREET RAIL SERVICE

MAX Yellow Line

Due to a collision between an auto and a northbound Yellow Line train at Interstate and Albina, MAX service is disrupted. Shuttle buses are carrying riders between the Interstate/Rose Quarter and Expo Center stations. Riders should expect delays.

EVERYTHING I DO OFF THE JOB IS A LAWFUL ACTIVITY

I had no problem with Trimet regulating my on the job behavior, such as no filming when driving, no taking pictures of employees/passengers with out permission etc.
But they are currently trying to stop me from completely lawful behavior OFF THE JOB!
And that is NOT LEGALLY ENFORCEABLE!

I MIGHT HAVE TO ASK FOR FEDERAL INTERVENTION!

GOT MY PAPER WORK FOR BIG MEETING WITH TRIMET HONCHO ROBERT ROMO

number of safety incidents per million trips

That's right, Trimet has scored #1 in the nation and one of the criteria most important is the number of safety incidents per million trips! 

Our own management combined with the lying press coverage of our transit system disagrees with US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT!

It's possible that people don't understand the definition of safety, let's elaborate:


–noun, plural -ties.
1.
the state of being safe; freedom from the occurrence or risk of injury, danger, or loss.
2.
the quality of averting or not causing injury, danger, or loss.
3.
a contrivance or device to prevent injury or avert danger.

Should we contact US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT and have them interview our management?

With the new rulings by the Labor Relations Board, a new blog is being formed that will be restricted only to people who are NOT PART OF THE TRIMET MANAGEMENT TEAM!

People will be able to post and discuss any audio, video, document, etc away from the prying eyes of the management.

PORTLAND'S TRIMET RANKS #1 IN AMERICA

This is why I love being a bus driver

PORTLANDS TRIMET RANKS #1-WAIT A MINUTE HERE!

The rankings take into account per capita spending on public transportation, number of safety incidents per million trips, and the number of trips taken per capita.

number of safety incidents per million trips

number of safety incidents per million trips

Our esteemed general manager has informed us that we need a "culture transformation"!
We need to create a "culture of safety"!
But US News and World Reports has just examined the factual data and ranks Portland #1 City, in the ENTIRE US of A!
And part of that rating is number of safety incidents per million trips!

Could our general manager be wrong about our "culture of safety?"
I have been saying all along that there was nothing wrong with our culture!
And now it appears that I have been proven right by none other than US NEWS AND WORLD REPORTS!
Is it possible that a minor blogger could know more about the culture of  Trimet than a guy who has worked in capital projects for 2 decades?
Nah, can't be possible right?
I only made $35k last year.
Neil Mcfarlane made $240k, thats more than 10 times what I made.
He must know 10 times as much stuff about Trimet than me right?
